Olympus to Preview BX63 Customizable Motorized Research Microscope at Neuroscience 2010, Nov. 13-17

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., November 10, 2010 — Attendees of the Neuroscience 2010 meeting in San Diego next week will have the opportunity to preview the fully automated Olympus BX63 motorized upright advanced microscope, which allows users to personalize their own workspace and workflow. The BX63, which will be available to customers in January 2011, is being exhibited in Olympus Booth 2231. The new microscope simplifies observation and imaging tasks and delivers outstanding performance, enabling researchers to focus on their science instead of the process of managing their equipment. Users can control all observation and image-capture functions with a quick slide of the finger on its ultra-easy, programmable touch-screen. Both the motorized and coded fluorescence illuminators feature the proprietary Olympus fly’s-eye lens system, ensuring that the field of view is illuminated homogeneously.
